    Lyrics
    If you could read my mind love

    I can see her lyin' back in her satin dress

    Lyrics
    At times I just don't know
    How you could be anything but beautiful
    I think that I was made for you

    Lyrics
    There was a time in this fair land when the railroad did not run
    When the wild majestic mountains stood alone against the sun
    Long before the white man and long before the wheel
    When the green dark forest was too silent to be real
    But time has no beginnings and hist'ry has no bounds

    Lyrics
    The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
    Of the big lake they called 'gitche gumee'
    The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
    When the skies of November turn gloomy
    With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more
